    Hi everyone. AVG Antivirus 8.0 Free Edition keeps shutting down on my friend's Windows Vista Home Edition Basic computer. Could you please tell us how to fix this problem? :confused:

    The first thing I would try is to uninstall then reinstalling AVG. If it still keeps turning off then I would suspect that some malware is trying to turn it off. Then I would try some of the online scanners like the ones listed in the sticky Security Help Tools.( near the top of all messages in this forum )
